marvel, the customer live well north of Toronto. Looking up the distance to south Buffalo is a little over a 100 miles.

He is around Woodbine Ave and Aurora Side Road.

With his old setup the Yagi Uhf/Channel master preamp he was not able to pull in all the HD Buffalo stations properly. Nbc, Pbs, and Sun on one of his Sony tv was about 14-15db s/n, not enough for a stable lock. The Sony can lock at 16db stable.

After the swap Nbc and Pbs was btween 20-24db and Sun around 20-22db with other Buffalo channels improving oin signal strength.

The customer existing preamp was quite old not sure what channel master model it was. It was a 300 ohn connections. Rather use the balun as the 300ohm wires were showing age.

The amount of cable run I did not want to take a change of swapping the antenna and then change the preamp after. We did everything at once.

Results was excellent.
